Spotlight on Ukraine: Interview with Veronika Movchan

— With continued Russian military build-up around Ukraine’s borders, Veronika Movchan talks about the resilience and stability of Ukraine’s economy, and public confidence in the state and ruling elite.

Veronika, who is Academic Director at the Institute for Economic Research and Policy consulting, outlines her analysis based on the following questions:

  • How resilient is the Ukrainian economy and what economic leverage does Russia still hold?
  • What is Ukraine’s strategy to preserve economic stability?
  • How effective is the Russian effort to undermine confidence in the Ukrainian state and its ruling elite?

In Ukraine, complex and fluid internal dynamics are in motion as a result of the ongoing struggle between the system of old rules and vested interests on the one hand, and a strong demand and pressure from society and a new generation of policymakers for new rules on the other.

The Ukraine Forum brings together a dynamic group of stakeholders, including politicians, practitioners, civil society leaders, academics and journalists to examine the political situation in Ukraine.
